at the cnn money desk, thank you. >>> this just coming in to the situation room. word of a resignation because the federal government started releasing illegal immigrants to save money because of the upcoming forced budget cuts. there's a lot of outrage and indeed around the country because several hundred deta detainees who had been held in jail have been freed already, even though the cuts don't even take affect for two days. jessica yellin is here. the president didn't know anything about this. that's what they are saying at the white house, that the president was totally in the dark. he was just as surprised by all of us that they started releasing hundreds of detained illegal immigrants. >> that's right, wolf. their point, that's how it works. it happens at the agency level and not the white house level. gary mead, the head of the enforcement and removal operations, big title. bottom line is, he's part of the operation that helps decide who is let go and who stays at the immigration's department is leaving his job. is he leaving his job and this news comes just a day after we lear
at the fact that when you look at the movie, "argo," in an interview cnn, former president jimmy carter said "argo" is accurate enough. let me play for you what former president carter said. >> 90% of the contributions to the ideas and consummation of the plan was canadian. and the movie gives almost full credit to the american cia. when i left office, i ordained that we would not reveal any american involvement in the process, but to give the canadians full credit for the entire heroic episode, that prevailed for a number of years afterwards. but i think it is a great film and it tells a dramatic story and i think it is accurate enough. >> to be a great film, does it have to be accurate? don't some of the films take on history? >> does it have to be accurate to be a great film? no. do some of them take liberties with history? absolutely. hollywood does dramatization, we all know that. but when they take the artistic license we are talk about to the service of emotional truth, makes you feel like it is very difficult to get out of iran. i have no problem with that. what django does, it makes
, which is going to be running after the state of the union apparently on fox and msnbc and on cnn. >> we have a problem. where we shop, where we pray, where our children go to school. but there are solutions we can agree on. even gunowners like us. take it from me. congress must act. let's get this done. >> in addition to running after the state of the union tomorrow night on cable networks, that ad is scheduled to air on local broadcast tv in washington, d.c. according to the group that produced the ad, they're also planning on running this in local media markets, reaching the constituents of all four top congressional leaders from both houses and both parties. so that's mitch mcconnell, harry reid, nancy pelosi and john boehner. in response i think to the number of democrats and the first lady bringing victims of gun violence with them as guests to the state of the union this year, to highlight that issue, one republican member of congress this year has decided to do his part to advance the serious consideration of gun violence and lawful gun ownership in america by inviting as his gue

[ applause ] >> stephanie: continue to exist here. our dick morris impressions by jim ward. i don't know what the deal is because karl rove was just as wrong although i have to say at least he was exposed for the -- always so all powerful, karl rove. scary. he is a sad pathetic, little wrong man on election flight sputtering. anyway, this is what caused all of the trouble. fight, fight fight. >> love this. >> stephanie: shoving each other into the lockers. leaders of the tea party fuming about plans by some republican strategists including karl rove to raise money to help quote-unquote electable candidates win primary races. leaders of the tea party and other republican groups that oppose abortion and gay rights responded by calling rove a fake conservative who had declared war on the tea p
by eight a cnn reporter weeks later. for you to testify in our posture did not allow a rapid response, the posture was not there because we did not take into account the threats to the consulate. that is why four americans died. we could have placed forces there, could have had aircraft and other capabilities of short plays the way. so for you to testify before the committee consistent with what estimates is false. the military was appropriately respond to what was an appropriate response since no forces arrived in tel well after the murders took place for obviously your capabilities allow you to be positioned very shortly finally all of this as a result of the footprint. after gadaffi fell many of us made it clear they needed our help, a secure the arms cache, and secure borders, a technical assistance but the light footprint we did not provide for it was almost predictable, almost that bad things would have been in libya. here was a fledgling government, never governed before without assistance we could have provided. i beg you secretary panetta to send a hospital ship to treat the
has allegedly accessed the email accounts of the bush family and the secret service tells cnn this morning it is invest indicating. the smoking gun broke the story and says it has been corresponding via email. the hacker says he has access to core upon dense send between 2009 and last year. one belongs to jim nance who is a long-time family friend. the smoking gun details links to many of the private correspondences and images taken. allegingly a picture george bush sent to his sister of paintings he is working on one is of him in the shower and the other one is of him in the tub. a knew poll shows that hillary clinton is very popular. something she could take into consideration as she figures out what she is going to do next. her favorability rating is at 61%. on the respect side the potential 2016 presidential candidate with the best numbers at the moment is senator marco rubio. 57% of people say they just don't know enough about him to have a real opinion. rubio is going to give the republican response to the state of the union address on tuesday night
so of one branch of government. >> former secretary of defense, robert gates, on cnn's "state of the union" this morning spoke up for a check on the president's ability to take on these attacks as well. take a listen to this. >> i think some check on the ability of a president to do this has merit as we look to the longer-term future. >> why not have a judicial or a congressional panel as part of the process, general? >> well, i think congressional oversight is absolutely required. we do that with cia operations in general anyway. and clearly, congress retains the power to fund or not fund programs, to impeach the president or senior officers of the government. we do want checks and balances, but congress is not a good decision-making branch for wartime operations, and seshlg essentially, that's what we're doing here, we're trying to keep another 9/11 from happening. and primarily, i might add, these aren't operations in canada and france. >> right. >> we're talking ungoverned, lawless areas of the world. >> peter baker, "the new york times" this morning, i'm sure you saw this
wrote he went on cnn and the other tv stations and said these words words that will live in infamy if we care anything in this body about respectful treatment from the executive branch, if we have any commitment to plain truth. he said -- "our budget will get us over the next several years to the point where we can look the american people in the eye and say we're not adding to the debt anymore. we're spending money that we have each year, and then we can work on bringing down our national debt." how unbelievable a statement could that be since his own numbers, not somebody else's, his own numbers when he submitted the budget on monday, the next day showed that the lowest single deficit in any one of the ten years was $600 billion. he would have added $13 trillion to the gross debt of the united states over ten years and the numbers, the deficits were going up in the last five years. a totally unsustainable course. erskine bowles, ahead of the fiscal commission, said -- was in shock i think when he saw this and he said -- appointed by president obama to head the commission said this will
was the network's chief white house correspondent 2009 until 2012 and just last month, left to join cnn as the chief washington correspondent and anchor of an upcoming daily news show. his book, "the outpost: an untold story of american valor", is about a 2009 battle in afghanistan. one magazine described it as perhaps the best afghanistan but to date. please welcome to the savannah book festival, jake tapper. [applause] >> thank you so much. i know sergeant burchfield who is in the book and his family are here. anybody who is in the book over there, there she is, hello. he and his son and i believe everything is set. also, but he is a national guardsman. he was training afghan soldiers and gave his life trying to save an afghan soldier six years ago tomorrow. in any case, anybody who is here whose lives are chronicled in the book or lives of loved ones are chronicled in the book, it means so much when they do turn out much when they do turn out and come to visit us. please come over and introduce yourself after the event. i am not a likely person to have written the war book. i have co
yourself, in order to save his fellow comrades and he spoke to cnn's jake tapper and said in part, the thinking that was going through their heads. we're going to dig deep, we're going to man up. it was amazing to watch the great sacrifice, losing out on sleep, long hard days running up and down the mountains with less guys in the unit than before we took pride in that and we did more with less and that was our motto for a while. doing more with less. and you heard jennifer griffin talking about his fellow troop members there are few people i'd follow to hell and back and romesha is one of them. in the moments before the ceremony, the little boy-- he has three children and one much them you heard the president referring to, little colin. check out the peek-a-boo behind the podium moments before. look at this adorable little boy and what a hero his daddy is and thank god he got to see him again and our thoughts and prayers are with the family who did not welcome home their children in the way they would have liked, but thanks to staff sergeant romesha, they did get to say a final g
future." at 1:30, cnn's chief washington correspondent jake tapper on the war in afghanistan in "the outpost." gary willslock, asks, "why priests?" this is live on saturday at c- span2, starting at 10:15. >> "washington journal" continues. host: marsha blackburn joins us. a republican from tennessee. good morning. president obama has been on a tour is a visiting places like georgia, north carolina. we saw him give the state of the union address. how are republicans getting some air time? what is your message this week as the president takes his message to the street? guest: how unfortunate that he chose to leave d.c. then rather trying to sit down with us of trying to address the nation's problems. jobs, the economy, out of control spending -- we would have loved to have had the opportunity to talk to him and work with him. the way republicans are getting our message out is through what i call the network of you. is our constituents. you have seen republicans very active on social media this week. you're seeing us a very active with a telephone and town halls. we're talking directly
of the consulate by a cnn reporter weeks later. so, for you to testify that our posture did not allow a rapid response, our posture was not there because we didn't take into account the threats to that consulate. and that's why four americans died. we could have placed forces there. we could have had aircraft and other capabilities as short distance away as that base. so for you to testify before this committee that they were consistent with available threat estimates is simply false. that our military was appropriately responsive, what would have been an inappropriate response? since any forces -- no forces arrived there until well after these murders took place and obviously your capabilities allowed you to be positioned to intervene very shortly. and finally, all of this is the result of the so-called light footprint. after gaddafi fell, many of us made it very clear that they needed our help. secure the arms caveps, then help -- help them -- caches, help them secure their borders, but the light footprint we did not provide. so it was almost predictable, almost, maybe not predictable, that
for your time and your leadership. >> thank you, sir. [indiscernible] >> we will start with cnn, thank you. >>the vast majority of top security officials in the previous administration supported the syrian rebels. were you briefed about this plan when you were in the senate, and what do you think about the plan? do you think is time to start arming the rebels? what do you think of the mixed messages coming from iran, the foreign minister, where the president has said he would be open to talks with iran? the foreign minister had some nice things to say about you, but the supreme leader said direct talks are not possible. do you think there are prospects for a deal, and do you have a plan to move this forward? >> that was three questions. >> 1 plus 1 does not equal 2. >> well done, i am impressed. [indiscernible] i beg your pardon? i am taking stock every day. next time i will ask you to ask half a question. let me answer that. the first part of your question, let me say that i do not know what the discussions were in the white house and who said what, and i will not go backwards. this is a
account through payroll deduction. those who participate too often how contribution rate too low. cnn plans need to encourage higher purchasing contributions. i may suggest three easy ways to do so. change the employer match. a typical plan is 50% up to 6% of pay. 6% are marching to plan consider and notched a 30% to 10% of pay would cost the employer for every employer at or about 10% in this case a financial incentives for 10% of pay but no increase cost to the employer. to encourage employers to adopt a higher contribution rate under enrollment. the widespread adoption following the act of 2006 has been a clear victory for public policy at the typical default contribution rate is 3% of falls well short of what is needed to save. we know from extensive research and the employees persist at the default. the solution is
solutions. on cnn, defense secretary panetta, secretary dempsey, and former labor secretary elaine chow. bob schieffer talking with nfl commissioner roger goodell. these are brought to you as a public service by the networks and c-span. beginning at noon with nbc's "meet the press." 1:00, this week. 2:00, fox news sunday. and finally at 4:00 p.m. eastern, face the nation from cbs. listen to them on c-span radio, 90.1 fm radio, nationwide on xm 119, on your smartphone or on- line to c-spanradio.org. >> john mccain's 2000 campaign when he ran for president is the most memorable campaign of any that i have ever covered or been around. we will never see it again. george w. bush had all of the face cards, the republican governors, the backing of all of the money. john mccain went and held 114 town meetings and stayed until every question was answered. you see the light bulb going on over these heads. we will never get a patient's bill of rights until my party is not owned by the insurance companies. there was this refreshing candor. he was totally open to the press. there was a sort of welcoming
of science. cnn reports he was joking but the comments come after that country allegedly sent a monkey to space and backs and senator john mccain has taken some heat from making a joke on twitter about ahmadinejad's comments yesterday tweeting so he wants to be the first iranian in space? wasn't he just there last week? it was a link to the monkey article. >> republicans criticizing mccain for that? >> i saw that. >> bill: i don't know. i know i'm supposed to be politically correct. i think it's okay to make monkey jokes about ahmadinejad. >> you're going to get letters. >> bill: peter ogborn. okay. i'm going to start evan, with you, with a story i didn't know about until this morning. broke late last night. and that is about american drone policy. we've been wondering nobody knows how many people we've killed. who makes the decisions -- with drones, how many americans, how many nonamericans, how many civilians, how many were really guilty. it is all a big, dark secret. john brennan is the architect of this policy. his nomination as director of c.i.a. i ran into senator ron wyden yeste
, that is a critical priority. we have heard both former c.i.a. director michael hayden in an interview on cnn and a general say that it is now changed and that the impact of those strikes is creating a backlash. for example, it was said that the unmanned strikes is greater than the what they can appreciate. they are hated on a visceral level. he add the targeted killings add to the presence of american arrogance. he said this adds to the perception of americans that said we can fly where we want, we do what we want because we can. general hayden also has expressed concerns that now that the strikes are being used at lower levels, arguably, that they are creating a backlash that is undermining the credibility of government and creating new terrorists when a neighbor or family member is killed in the course of the operations. do you agree with general mcchrystal and director hayden about the backlash of strikes from the targeted killings at this point? i am not talking about the initial strikes. >> that is something that we need to be mindful of in terms of reaction, any type of u.s. counter-te

[farting sounds] >> stephanie: does the intruder say i'm going to come out and steal some [ bleep ] in a minute. >> only reason they would lock themselves in would be defense. >> stephanie: it just doesn't seem that plausible to me. >> unless it is one of the things you can lock from the outside and you can shut it and you can't -- whatever. >> stephanie: when

[applause] we have a lot of distinguished guests in the audience. the deputy chief of mission for the embassy of lebanon. a lot of people who care about syria and looks to be a lively discussion this evening. in august, 2011 secretary of state hillary clinton called for the president bashar al-assad to step down for the sake of the syrian people. at that time about 2,000 people were killed. today that number of u.n. estimates has risen to more than 60,000 syrian is dead, hundreds of thousands of refugees have fled to turkey and jordan and iraq pleasing burdens on those countries, close to 2 million more, more than half have been displaced inside syria. what started as a brave stand has moved into a civil war with opposition forces becoming more radicalized, some of them would say infiltrated by extremist forces with links to al qaeda. the conflict threatens to destabilize the entire region and become a battleground for the proxy war some might say of competing interest. the and ratio
